Sweethaven Workshops have been a staple of the community since the business opened decades ago. Many of the original members of the Peter Rabbit Garden are grown with their own children now.

Our workshops include everything from beautiful fresh table garlands to dried herbal wreaths to wheat weavings, and are a terrific way to spend time with friends while you
hand craft your gifts for the holiday season.

Register for workshops by emailing sweethavenfarmct@gmail.com 

We currently do not have any workshops scheduled, but check back soon for the upcoming 2017 holiday season!
